UPDATE May 16: The powder-puff junior v. senior girls tackle football game, with boys cheerleading will be held at the Jupiter High football field Friday, May 27, 2016 at 6 p.m.
May 12, 2016 post: The Jupiter Powder-Puff committee – all the parents, students, community leaders interested in keeping the girls-full-tackle tradition alive – met Wednesday night and have come up with a tentative game day: May 27.
The original powder-puff match-up was cancelled by Jupiter High’s principal, but the students – both girls and boys – persisted. Now the plan is to play on the Jupiter High football field by having the town rent it.
But because there is so much to do, they do have about a week of wiggle room, according to notes from parent Lori Walsh, whose daughter is among the several girls who have worked to keep the game in play.
On the to-do list:
Schedule two practice fields, one for seniors and one for juniors
Verify background checks for parent volunteers
Finalize the insurance
Hire the referees
And much, much more.
The group meets again May 18 at 5:30 p.m. at the Jupiter Community Center
